Show Notes

Welcome to Season Two of the Antiracist Parenting Podcast! We start off the season with an AMAZING guest, Malaika Parker, who is the Director at Adoptive Parents of Color Collaborative. Malaika is committed to building whole and complete futures for her biological and adopted children. She does this, in partnership with her spouse, by being honest always, centering the humanity of Black people, and cultivating (literally in their urban garden) Black joy. Malaika is finding ways to build community and create environments that are free from racism and white supremacy, and she shares her “how-to” in this wonderfully filling - and nutritious - episode.

Please note: We sometimes use the acronym BIPOC, which means Black, Indigenous and/or People of Color.
